Translation by Bhikkhuni Uppalavanna


A certain deity worshipped the Blessed One, stood on a side and said this stanza:

"Sons are the enjoyment of those who have sons
The herd, enjoyment of the herdsman,
Endearments are the enjoyment of humans
Without endearments, there's no enjoyment."

"Sons are the grief of those who have sons
Herd, the grief of the herdsman,
Endearments are the grief of humans
Without endearments, there's no grief."
